The University of Manchester has pledged to eliminate ‘avoidable’ single-use plastic by 2022. To contribute, Dr Maggy Fostier and Dr Ruth Grady from the School of Biological Sciences (SBS) have launched a project to reduce the amount of plastic in their undergraduate laboratory classes. These classes involve thousands of students per year who require pipettes, weighing boats, stirrers, gloves and other plastic implements which sometimes can have usage lifespans that are less than a minute.
